Academic ether-gazing

An old favorite I just discovered, "Life Among the Econ" by Axel Leijonhufvud. This is a touch-and-cheek anthropological account of the the Econ (homoeconomicus or economic man).

Jibes and thrusts reach far past the facade of lexicographic labyrinth and into the tortuous heart of the discipline. The vacuum-induced apnea that produces results true in laboratory but exceptionally susceptible to the viruses of the human condition. Anyway, it's an elaborate poke to tickle those with any interest in the field.

field notes: discovery via Greag Manikiw's random post, which I wouldn't have found had Derek
not reminded me of this great blog. Thanks D.
